1. Isaiah 41:10

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10 is a good verse for someone in the hospital because it speaks about fear, distress, and weakness.

The verse begins by saying “fear not.” This means that fear will come (no if, nor but, or maybe), fear will come to make you a victim in the day of trouble.

But God says that he is with you, and he will deliver you when you call on him in times of trouble.

“Be not dismayed.” The other instruction that Isaiah is giving us is to don’t stress. This means that heaven is aware that the devil will stir up stressful situations to distract you from praying to God.

But God says that he is your God, he sees what you’re going through, and if you call on him he will answer you.

Thirdly, Isaiah 41:10 says that God will strengthen you. This means that the devil will use your health condition to drain you of your strength and confidence in God.

Naturally, you’ll also feel weak, especially if your health is deteriorating, or you’re recovering after surgery. But God says that he will strengthen you, he’ll restore your strength to that of a young eagle.

2. John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

John 14:27 is another scripture you should add to your list of encouraging bible verses for someone in the hospital.

John14:27 speaks about peace, not the peace that the world gives through one’s confidence in earthly securities. But the peace of God that “passeth all understanding.” So even while you’re in the hospital you can find rest to hope in God.

3. 1 Peter 2:24

“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”

1 Peter 2:24 is also a powerful scripture to add to your collection of inspirational bible verses for someone in the hospital because it remains us of the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

Jesus took your place, and the implication of this is that you are now free, healed, and righteous. Don’t allow the devil to deceive you because Jesus said it is finished and it is so, Amen.

4. Philippians 4:19

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”

Why would I add Philippians 4:19 to any list of good scriptures for someone in the hospital?

Because it speaks to God’s sovereign ability to provide no matter what our needs are, whether healing, daily bread, peace, deliverance, or encouragement, God will meet all of our needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

5. 2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

One of the devil’s biggest weapons is fear, and he uses fear as a weapon to scare believers out of their blessings and right standing with God.

Once the devil succeeds in scaring you, he will then confine you to a cage where prayer, praise, and believing God becomes hard.

When this happens, you’re strapped and will not see the day of light until and unless someone prays for you.

For this cause, as you wait in the hospital, pray that God speaks to other believers to pray for you.

Also, pray that satan doesn’t sift you like wheat and that you receive grace to pray without ceasing.

6. Isaiah 5:1-2

“Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My well-beloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill: And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes”

A big mistake many believers make is to live an unfruitful life and then expect God to deliver them in times of trouble.

But I’m afraid it doesn’t work like that. As a believer, we need to acquire knowledge and grace to help us to become fruitful, otherwise, we will hinder our deliverance from God.

This is why confessing and refraining from sin are so important because doing so helps to create an environment for God’s deliverance to manifest.

Pray this prayer”Heavenly father, God of mercy, love, and forgiveness, have mercy on me. I confess my sins (name sins) before you, and I ask you to forgive me in the name of Jesus Christ your son.” Amen.

7. Isaiah 12:2

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.”

He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
